U.S. Chamber of Cronyism ^ | 7/28/14

Posted on 07/29/2014 5:45:30 AM PDT by cotton1706

According to news reports, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce plans to support Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) in the Louisiana Senate race.

Mary Landrieu (D-LA)This is the same group that said it was going to spend $50 million against conservatives in primaries to elect more Republicans.

That was a huge lie.

The U.S. Chamber doesn't care about electing Republicans. It just wants more big government politicians who will force taxpayers to pay for their corporate bailouts and corporate welfare programs.


The Chamber's support for Mary Landrieu isn't what's so surprising. It's the lack of any meaningful response from the GOP establishment in Washington that is downright shocking!

You would expect the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) to be absolutely furious over this betrayal, but they're not.

The NRSC told the Wall Street Journal, "The Chamber is probably going to be with [Landrieu]. We've already baked all of this into the equation."

That's it? No rebuke? No blacklisting of vendors? No threats to "punch them in the nose?" No threats to "crush" them "everywhere?" Nothing?

When conservatives support principled Republicans in safe red states, the GOP establishment goes berserk attacking us. But when the U.S. Chamber supports a Democrat in a competitive race, they shrug it off as no big deal.


Bill Cassidy (R-LA)If you look closer at the candidates, you will see why the GOP party bosses in DC aren't upset at the U.S. Chamber for backing Landrieu.

Truth is, there isn't much difference between Senator Landrieu and the NRSC's candidate, Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-LA).

“Truth is, there isn’t much difference between Senator Landrieu and the NRSC’s candidate, Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-LA).”

Yes, there is. If Cassidy wins, that brings Ted Cruz one step closer to forcing Republicans to behave like Republicans and not Socialist light.

I’d gladly pay more for a chicken if it meant that there were no illegals involved in the processing of it.
